Focke Wulf Ta 183 in Argentinian markings

Recommended Posts

The Ta 183 was one of the many aircraft planned during the Third Reich's 1944 "Emergency Fighter Plan." The aircraft never went beyond a wooden mock up.

After WW2, Kurt Tank fled to Argentina, where he continued the development of the Ta 183 in what would become the Pulqui 2, Argentina's first indigenous swept winged fighter. Only 5 Pulqui 2s were produced before a coup d'etat took place in 1955, which ordered the cancellation of the fighter.

 

The idea behind this plane was that Argentina joined WW2 on the Axis side, and as a reward it was given several Ta 183s to modernise its air force.

Interesting use of the kit. How well did it go together? 

The kit went together well. You have to add weight behind the cockpit, something Academy misses to point out.
